From 16 to 18 January 2017, the third annual ESSMA Summit took place at Parc Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon, France), one of the impressive host venues of EURO 2016. With 350 stadium industry professionals from 30 different countries the ESSMA Summit proved a great success. For those who missed it, be sure to check out the event aftermovie.

The ESSMA Summit is the must-attend stadium industry event organized by ESSMA (European Stadium & Safety Management Association) in partnership with the EPFL (European Professional Football Leagues), ECA (European Club Association) and the ICSS (International Centre for Sport Security).

ESSMA Summit: must-attend stadium industry event

On day one, a Stadium Development Seminar was organized with the goal to share latest stadium & renovation projects in Europe. Keynote speakers on stadium industry topics and in-depth workshops on trending stadium were combined with extensive stadium tours that aimed to bring great insights to all delegates.

Amongst the +25 speakers: UEFA, Olympique Lyonnais, U.S. Bank Stadium (Minnesota Vikings), FC Bayern Munich, Arsenal FC, French Professional Football League, French National Rugby League, Twickenham Stadium, Aviva Stadium and many more…

The ESSMA Summit showed to be fantastic event for delegates in order to broaden their network in the stadium industry and to link-up with European colleagues in a unique setting.

Next edition will take place at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, also one of my favorite venues, from 16 to 18 January 2018. Find out more about the ESSMA Summit.
